My thanks to my pal, artist Robert W. Zailo for the help on this and some other upcoming Last Kiss art.

In addition to making some art corrections, Robert has been removing backgrounds for me. For instance, Robert erased the drapes, window, lamp, etc. that you see in the original art below. That way I can easily add snazzy, new new backgrounds like the one in the art above.

Thanks, Robert, and welcome to the Last Kiss team of underpaid geniuses!

Art by Charles Nicholas & Sal Trapani from the story “Good Ole Joe” in FIRST KISS #1, 1957.
